My kid gets a ticket

on the ONE day I let him drive my car. I had to drive is Cherokee in for service and being that I am the nice dad who lets his son drive the goat to school....u know....so he can be a bad a$$ for a day. hmmm... He is a senoir (19yo)about to graduate and everything...as a matter a fact he JUST got a reduction in his insurance because he has proven to be a safe driver for 3 years! 75 mph in a 45! Only $'s will keep him fron loosing his license.

By the way....the deputy was driving an umarked Magnum...he says to my Kid "this your car son" with a grin on his face. Was not a good day yesterday.

Well, I had to set the o/s beep at 55 for my wife as she was doing 55-60 in 45's all the time and bound to get a ticket soon.
The max speed limit between home and work is 45. I first set it to 50 but she complained that it was always going off. The GTO is so quick and quiet that it's probably not entirely his fault.

P.S. I stopped calling my son "kid" when he turned 16. Also, he was about 4 inches taller and weighed about 50 pounds more than me.

I suppose you have a point there. He will be earning the money to pay for it, like any other man.

That is the one thing about driving a gto and being young. Every cop will find a reason to pull you over. I'm still the proud owner of a "accelerating too quickly from a light" ticket. Dumbest thing i've ever heard. I have to go to court on the 7th for it. I had traction control on and everything, i did like 0-55 in about 9 seconds and still got pulled over.

*Boggle* This is dumb.

I would think that they would have to define "too quickly". Otherwise, it is very open to personal opinion and interpretation.
